*** If he wanted the eggs, he would have told Joanna to bring them back up as opposed to eating them. And don't try and tell me she couldn't, she could lift the rocks they were replaced with easy enough.

** Well in the Peter in Kesgenton gardens (book set before Peter and Wendy, ie Peter Pan) and in the real Mary Poppins book. It seems like we can talk to birds/animals at birth but that ability disappears when one is older. It's been lampshaded in ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' between Kate and Pal.

** Fear is often an irrational, illogical emotion. For instance, someone who likes to do extreme dangerous sports could still freak out at the mere sight of any harmless spider. Also, RuleOfFunny. Her EekAMouse scene is one of the funniest part of the movie.

* Madame Medusa lives in (or at least is hiding out in) a derelict steamboat in a desolate swamp. She has two pet crocodiles that are obedient to her. So why does she totally freak out at the sight of a tiny mouse? It's not like they'd be carrying some horrible disease that she could probably already get from the swamps mosquitoes or her crocodiles.

** It's possible for water to be appearing to flow uphill depending on the grade of the area. Alternately, even if there is a slight uphill portion in the rivier, the current of the river is probably strong enough to overcome it (especially considering there's a huge honking waterfall at the end).

* A website cataloging various Disney mistakes and plotholes brought up a good point: McCleach keeps boasting that Marahute will make him rich, but he already got Marahute's mate; why didn't he get rich from THAT bird?

** Perhaps she thought that all the agents are so eager to go with her only because of her looks and would not consider her a real partner. The chairman is rather pompous and it can be assumed that other agents are similar. In contrast Bernard is a humble fellow who still truly believes in the Rescue Aid Society ideals (which is established when he sings the jingle standing outside) even though he's just a janitor. Also it was Bernard who said (again having no right to speak) that it's too dangerous for her to go alone. Most importantly the "qualified agents" doesn't look very adventurous themselves so it was enough for Miss Bianca to feel his {{HiddenDepths}} to make a choice.

* There's a strange moment towards the end of ''Down Under'', when Bernard gets McCleach's truck shut off, and steals the keys. McCleach starts looking for the keys, while Bernard hides behind the pedal. Bernard then looks down at something on the floor of the truck, then has this look on his face like he just got an idea, and then.... we just see him jumping out of the truck with the keys, and running into Joanna. What was that all about?
** Presumably, he saw a way out of the truck, taking the keys with him to hinder McLeach further; realistically, he would look in the truck until he had exhausted every conceivable place they could have fallen into before it occurred to him that they may not be in the truck anymore. That and McLeach isn't very smart to begin with.
